I am Asad Motala, a Digital Media and Web Technologies student. Over the past 3 years at the University of Gloucestershire I have acquired many skills such as HTML5, CSS3, PHP, MySQL, App Development, 3D Modelling, 2D/3D Animations, Graphics Design and Augmented Reality. My main role at Code X is to make an Augmented Reality educational app on landmarks from all over the world, research the history behind 2 landmarks and do 2 pages of the book which is going to be compatible with the AR App. I will also be creating wireframes for the App and editing the final trailer.
CodeX is working to create an AR app that aims to be used by young teenagers to gather information/history knowledge from popular tourist destinations. The app will allow users to scan a booklet with their phones to bring up 3D models of chosen monuments (such as the Eiffel Tower, Christ the Redeemer and the London Eye). A voiceover will also be available for users who might not want/be able to read. The app will be educational and will fit the mass audience of teenagers who find reading normal informative pamphlets too boring and not captivating enough. This will allow the audience to learn key historical and cultural facts from all around the world without getting bored.
